Art galleries, schools and artists’ studios across Norfolk have opened their doors to the public for 16 days, starting on May 28, where people can go and find out more about the art and crafts the artists do.
More than 450 artists are taking part this year, similar to the event in 2015, which had 248 venues across Norfolk which were open for exhibits. Artists from Norfolk, as well as some from around the UK are able to sell their work and raise their profile, as well as talk about their craft. Painters, potters, illustrators, printmakers and more are involved and anyone can take a trip to the studios to find out more.
The Norfolk and Norwich Open Studios project has been running for over 20 years and has established itself as one of the largest and most successful open studio schemes in the country. Visitors have the opportunity to see new art, meet artists and much of the art work that is being displayed in studios galleries and schools are available to buy from the creators.
Running until Sunday June 12, the project has opened its doors to local Norfolk schools in the last few years, so young artists can also showcase their original artwork. The Open Studios scheme will help to encourage more young people to get involved with the arts.
All the studios are free to visit and if you are staying in our holiday chalets in Norfolk over the next two weeks, why not support the project and check out the fantastic artwork from a range of Norfolk artists?
